The Cisbot, created by US firm ULC Robotics, is a robot that specialises in repairing cast iron pipeline joints. In the old days, town gas was made from coal and was of a wetter composition, but after the UK switched to natural gas in the 1970s, over time the gas has dried out the yarn in the joints, causing many of the pipes to leak.
